The following letter arrived 
too late to be read to the Indians 
at the Standing Rock Congress, 
so we publish it here. 


New York, June 20, 1910. 

My dear Father Ketcham: 

We deeply regret that it will 
be impossible to send a represen- 
tative of the Marquette League 
to the Catholic Sioux Congress 
which will be held this year at 
Fprt Yates, N. Dak.; we. there- 
fore, beg that you will be the 
bearer of our message to these 
Catholic Indians in whom we are 
so greatly interested. 

We rejoice at the honor con- 
ferred upon them by the pres- 
ence of the Apostolic Delegate 
and so many Bishops and greatly 
regret that none of their friends 
among the members of the Mar- 
quette League can be present on 
this great occasion. 

With renewed good wishes for 
the success of this congress and 
expressions of good will to these 
our Catholic Indian brethern, we 
remain, Yours very sincerely, 
The directors of the Marquette 

Eugene A. Philbin.
